A 24-year-old Madison man was arrested on suspicion of battery, theft and bail jumping after police say he attacked another man last weekend.
The 26-year-old victim told police that just before 8:30 p.m. on Sunday that he and the suspect, Albert K. Landrum, got into an argument on Kipling Drive.
Police said Landrum told them that he got into the fight because he thought the�victim was responsible for some recent thefts in the area, and felt the victim doesn't belong in the neighborhood.
The victim told police that he had a red bandanna in his pocket, and Landrum claimed the victim was pretending to be in a gang.
Police said Landrum then punched the victim, knocking him down, kicked him several times in the head and stole the bandanna and a portable radio.
Both items were recovered when�Landrum was arrested, authorities said.
